Read full description of the books:
A well written, engaging police procedural (which won the Toronto Book Award in 1984) whose strongest feature is probably the characterization of its protagonist, a police inspector going through a mid-life crisis, and its description of 'Douglas College' (a thinly fictionalized version of Ryerson University) and the foibles of the academics who are tenured there.
Have I reached the last of the set-in-Toronto detective/mystery novels? After having read more than a dozen in the past month or so, I conclude that they are pleasant because they don't expect much of the reader but ultimately dull for the same reason. I like literature to demand something, and most genre novels don't seem to offer or ask for much. The one exception so far: Robert Rotenberg's Old City Hall, a complex and highly engaging work that transcends its nominal genre.
